Mora Campground

Olympic National Park

Mora Campground is on the reservation system May 26, 2021 - September 15, 2021. Reservations can be made online 6 months in advance. During the rest of the year, it is on a first-come, first-served basis. During winter (November - April), some campground loops are closed, but camping is still available.

Nestled in a coastal forest, Mora Campground is located along the western coast of Olympic National Park and is near the Quillayute River. While no campsites provide a view of the river, a few sites are a small walk away from the riverbank. Surrounded by thick coastal forest, Mora Campground provides a quiet camping experience among large and mossy trees. 

Mora Campground offers 94 campsites, including one accessible site. Potable water and flush toilets are located throughout the campground. Each campsite contains a fire ring (with a fire grate) and picnic table. No electrical hookups are available at any campsites, but there is a RV dump station available (summer only) for $10 fee ($5 for Senior or Access Passes). The dump station fee is not included in the camping fee. 

There is no WiFi in the campground, but there is some cell service depending on the cellular provider. The nearest convenience store and restaurant is located three miles away (5 minute drive). Otherwise, the town of Forks is 13 miles (20 minute drive) and La Push is 9.5 miles (15 minute drive). A small ranger station is within walking distance of the campground and there is an outdoor amphitheater where evening ranger presentations are provided on summer weekends.

Nearby Attractions

Mora provides a central location for exploring the western portion of Olympic National Park. Wilderness coast line can be accessed via Third and Second Beach trailheads –no more than a 10 minute drive away. It is also a great jumping point to visit the Hoh Rainforest and Kalaoch areas of Olympic National Park. 

Recreation

Rialto Beach is located 2 miles away from Mora Campground and can be accessed by vehicle or on foot (this will require walking alongside a narrow road with no sidewalk). In the summer, a temporary accessible ramp is available that provides a view of the ocean and the beach from the parking area. During sufficient low tides, tidepooling is available at Hole-in-the-Wall, a 1.5 miles hike form the Rialto Beach parking area. Swimming is not recommended due to the presence of strong surf, rocks, and rip-tides. Rialto Beach is known for large drift logs that may pose a threat to hikers during high tides. It is recommended that all visitors consult a tide chart before hiking along the coast.

James Pond Loop Trail (.3 miles) is an easy forest trail. The trail head can be found near the Mora Ranger Station. This small trail leads into the forest and ends near a small pond, which provides wildlife viewing.
